It was fun running the strip at night, but the time change from the east coast made it later than I am used to running. They had some nice glow lights that were given away and they were selling Vegas strong t shirts for $5…..almost everyone was wearing them. Fun race.

This was the worst half that I have run. The packet pick up was difficult to get to and underwhelming. We had to go through security to get to the start, but we were not secure from and spectators. There was nothing to look at while running. Tons of cheaters, why bother running at all?

Worst mile of my life. This was after the half and in the sand. I am not a fast runner to begin with so I stayed back, but by the time we went, the sand was all torn up and it was hard to even walk on it. It didn’t seem like it would ever be over…..

It was unseasonable hot with 90 percent humidity. The race organizers were not prepared for this so if you were a slow runner like myself, there wasn’t much left at the water stations by the time I came through. Luckily, the spectators we fantastic and were hosing us down and passing out water. This was the closest that I came to not being able to finish a race, I got to a point where I stopped sweating.
